Washington DC

Pathways In Education takes students on a six day, five night civic immersion trip to Washington, DC. By studying and analyzing historical figures and the impacts of their actions, participants are encouraged to develop their own leadership styles and become advocates of change in their own community. Throughout the trip, students are asked to complete workbook activities and essays and engage in personal and group reflection about how history impacts their lives today.
